A NOTE FROM MIA
Thanks for visiting my website! I've been honored to serve as your State Senator in Juneau, where I've been hard at work fighting for our community.

Now, I am running for re-election to the Alaska State Senate to represent Senate District K. I'll need your help in order to keep serving West Anchorage in the Alaska legislature. Please explore my website for ways you can get involved. Together we can make sure our neighborhood has representation that matches our community values.

See where I stand on the issues that truly matter to you by visiting here or by contacting me personally. I'd love to hear from you.
    I grew up in West Anchorage

our families safe from crime.

    MIA ON THE ISSUES
    SAFE NEIGHBORHOODS AND COMMUNITIES
    I introduced legislation to repeal SB91 and restart the conversation about criminal justice reform. Read my op-ed on this issue.
    EDUCATION FOR ALL STUDENTS
    As a former high school government teacher, I know what it takes to make fixes in the classroom. I base education policy on “best practices” – what has been shown to garner results in our classrooms. From personal experience, I know that meaningful vocational education helps students who are entering the job market and students who go on to college. Job readiness is important student success and supporting teachers who are on the front lines of educating Alaska’s students every day should be one of our top priorities.
    SUPPORTING LIFE, AND ALASKA'S FAMILIES
    I am the pro-life, pro-family candidate who was one of the primary sponsors of the parental notification initiative in 2010.
    A STRONG, DIVERSE ALASKA ECONOMY THAT IS OPEN FOR BUSINESS
    I have worked hard to promote tourism and support industries and to encourage the responsible development of our natural resources such as oil & gas, mining, timber and fishing. I sponsored a bill that brought ride-sharing companies and jobs to Alaska. Watch a video short.
    GOVERNMENT ACCOUNTABILITY
     I will continue to work on a long-term fiscal plan that keeps government small. I was raised to save for a rainy day. This includes a realistic state spending cap and opposing economy hurting income and payroll taxes.  
    A LONG-TERM ENERGY PLAN
    We should encourage exploration at a time when our oil revenues are declining so that our North Slope oil keeps working for Alaska. Consequently, I am working to bring our natural gas to markets and encourage viable clean energy projects.
      MIA'S RECORD OF SUCCESS
    CRIMINAL JUSTICE REFORM
    I have introduced legislation to repeal SB91 and restart the conversation about how to best reform our criminal justice system
    SMALLER, MORE ACCOUNTABLE STATE GOVERNMENT
    I worked to restrain the growth of government.

    I led efforts to cut red tape for state permits.

    I co-sponsored legislation to require regular performance audits of all state agencies.
    BETTER EDUCATION FOR ALL ALASKAN STUDENTS
    I introduced legislation to allow more predictability in funding for schools.

    Mia has voted to increase education spending every year and voted to increase the BSA.

    I have voted every year to forward fund education.

    I support charter schools and vocational education opportunities.

    I introduced legislation promoting children's health through a physical activity requirement in school.
    DEVELOPING ALASKA’S ECONOMY
    I led the charge to bring rideshare companies like Uber and Lyft back to Alaska.

    I championed crowdfunding legislation making it easier for Alaskans to invest in their communities and local business.

    My groundbreaking legislation makes Alaska one of the most attractive state for high-growth start-up companies.

    I am fighting to promote tourism and resource development in an effort to help diversify the economy.

    I have worked to increase oil production and fill the Trans-Alaska Pipeline.

    My strong record of pro-prosperity has earned an A grading from the Alaska Business Report Card
    AFFORDABLE ENERGY FOR ALL ALASKANS
    I voted to increase job opportunities and bring long term, affordable energy to Alaskans through a gas pipeline.

    I support viable clean energy projects.
    SUPPORTING THE MILITARY
    I have voted for the veterans tax credit, easier professional licensing for spouses of the military, and benefits for military families.
